To ensure ease of use, whilst allowing for electronic locking, GEZEs Slimdrive EMD-F electromechanical swing door operators were specified.
The 7cm operators were installed in the Council Chamber, which features large wooden doors at 2.4 metres high. The EMD-F operators were supplied especially for these doors, as well as several wooden and glass doors in the corridors.
With its discreet design, the automatic operators can be fitted neatly on the patch rails of a door, meaning internal glass doors can benefit from installation.
With the building open to the public, the operators were chosen to restrict access to certain areas; swipe cards can be used by authorised personnel to enter private rooms.
GEZEs manual range of overhead closers were fitted to the rest of the buildings doors.
The companys TS 2000 NVs are suitable for installation in public venues, as they feature an over pressurisation value. This protects them from abuse and damage.
The operators offer a hydraulic latching action, alongside fully adjustable closing speed and force.
In addition to over 175 TS 2000 NVs, a further 21 of GEZEs TS 4000 manual overhead closers were used, offering adjustable power EN 1-6. These operators are suitable for doors from 750mm to 1,400mm wide.
11 fire doors were fitted with the TS 4000 E, which has been designed for use on smoke and fire protection doors.
The operators feature an electrohydraulic hold open device, which is released in the event of a fire to allow the fire door to close safely.
